My Services

My birth doula services include a complimentary interview in person, unlimited telephone support, 24/7 on-call commitment starting at 37 weeks until birth, prearranged doula backup, free access to my extensive lending library of books and DVDs, and other resources throughout the length of my services.

I like to have two prenatal visits with my clients where I really get to know you and your hopes, concerns and preferences about your birth and early postpartum period.  I join you whenever and wherever you need support, and stay with you continuously until you are settled after birth and everyone (including baby!) is eating. I work alongside your chosen clinical caregivers respectfully and confidently.

Our first postpartum visit in the first few days after birth includes feeding support, practical help and mentoring. Following this visit I am available for support over the phone and check in with my clients often in the first weeks.  The notes that I take during the birth can help you to preserve your own memories of the experience and I share these with you at a final postpartum visit within a month of the birth.  I can also take photographs during your labor and birth and we discuss your preferences prenatally.

Currently my full birth doula fee is a sliding scale of $1200-2000.  It is collected in two parts-  a Retainer fee of $600 secures my availability, covers all scheduled visits and 24 hr on-call commitment to you and your family.  The remaining sliding scale of $600-1400 is the Birth fee and covers everything else.  My full birth doula fee for returning clients is $1000-1600.
